The international community’s condemnation of the Russian military attack on Ukraine is resounding. The attack is already worsening the existing difficult humanitarian situation, putting the lives of tens of millions of people in the affected areas at risk. As international humanitarian organizations, Cesvi Foundation and the partners of Alliance2015 – the globally active European network created to achieve stronger responses and better impacts through collaboration – are preparing to address the growing and acute humanitarian needs of the population through partners already present and active on the ground.
Cesvi and Alliance2015’s partners, People in Need (PIN) and ACTED, have been responding to humanitarian needs in Ukraine since 2014 and now plan to scale up efforts in supporting the affected population in Ukraine, as well as in neighbouring countries, where up to 5 million people are expected to seek refuge.
[…] Together we are assessing the rapidly evolving situation, so that we are ready to re-launch humanitarian activities at maximum capacity as soon as possible.
“In the first phase, we will provide mainly the most basic needs according to the currently developing situation; usually this is cash assistance, food aid, hygiene items and support of facilities for IDPs”, says Petr Drbohlav, Alliance2015 member PIN’s regional director for the Eastern Partnership and the Balkans.

Alliance2015 is a strategic and operational network of 7 European-based international NGOs, that envisions a world without poverty, hunger, and fear of oppression. We envision resilient and empowered people and societies. We believe in the power of better collaborations, and in this spirit, we support and strengthen the response capacity of our members on the ground, to contribute to an adequate and effective humanitarian assistance to the affected vulnerable population.
